East and North Herts NHS Trust


Our commitment to the Armed Forces Covenant

We are proud of our gold award Employer Recognition Scheme status and support our UK armed forces by supporting reservists, cadet instructors, veterans and military spouses/partners into employment, and offering supportive policies that value their contribution to the community and to our Trust.  

We will always consider offering an interview to spouses/partners if they meet the selection criteria laid out in a job advert.

We will look sympathetically on requests for leave before, during or after a partner’s deployment according to our policy.

We grant special paid leave for employees who are bereaved or whose loved ones are injured via our Special Leave policy.
